Board of Directors

BFCAC's Board of Directors serves as the catalyst for our mission to make the entire community more responsive to the needs and interests of the poor by mobilizing resources and bringing greater institutional sensitivity.

The agency is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of 15 members who reside in Benton and Franklin Counties.

One third are elected public officials and one third represents the poor and one third represents the private sector.
